Melvin Lewis Graham will always be remembered as a hard working man, who did not believe in letting challenging season hold him down. Fond memories come to my mind of such a beautiful spirit while in my presence. one of the most amazing experience was a trip to New York . At that time it was to visit my mom during a time of her illness and in the hospital as her health was in a decline status.I pray God will be a beacon of light to the family and friends whose lives were touched by his beautiful spirit l when needed in the days ahead.
Blessing and Peace,
